    5150 III - Time for a new computer

    The 3600x already comes with a rather beefy stock cooler. Since you are not overclocking it should do the job nicely. If, however, you are still very worried about cooling, I will endorse a good air cooler over an AIO everytime. I recommend the Cryorig H7. It's a lot easier to install than a...

    Oy, again with the failed state moniker. No matter how much you shout it to the heavens the idea that the US is a failed state is laughable at best. The article makes some points though. And you do have the wrong leader for the situation. However that headline is both disingenuous and rather...

    5150 III - Time for a new computer

    Depends on the Intel SSD (i swear those fucking thumbnails...) PB's assessment on his reply is accurate w/r/t CPU's, though the price gap has lowered on the enthusiast space. On the GPU space, however, while there is still somewhat of a locked market. AMD has been playing catchup since the...

    5150 III - Time for a new computer

    Funnily enough, out of everything on that list, you will see the most dramatic effects thanks to the SSD, prepare for sub 30 second boot times. Two things about your list. You may not care about RTX or insane performance, but nVidia has by far a more polished driver experience with their GPUs...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    Trump vs. Biden is more favorable towards the democratic side, yes. Though personally I still believe that it isn't enough to offset Trump and that Biden is a mistake. To repeat the point I made on his thread, you're running a democratic candidate that lost California. The DNC should have a...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    To save myself some typing, here's something from 2017, lightly massaged and reinforcing the people who also voted not for trump but against Clinton. It was written at the time as a reply to someone generalizing the trump voters as a racist assholes.

    So about that Ring camera... Not an EU concern yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon is also shopping around that service on Europe

    Routers for the year 2020

    Can confirm, I had a WRT54 for about a decade before something that makes a whining noise when it breaks broke. I am currently Using an E1200 that has been very good for me, except for the problem that our increased use means we are now reaching its limits for LAN. The poor thing seems unable...

    Routers for the year 2020

    Futureproofing? Durability? Updates and Support? Also, I will give you the same advice I give everyone, just buy a Linksys with the features you want and that's relatively recent. Here's one without WiFi6 Here's one with WiFI6

    Covid 19 CRISIS

    And suddenly, all those first-time gun owners are instantly validated. Stay safe out there...and away from dollar stores, check cashing places, and most Burger Kings.

    ...So you watch Fox News and are a screaming wreck? Maybe there *is* more of a correlation than I give it credit for. :P the 24H news cycle on any network is a mistake.
